Nope, girlfriend really need a vise. Not making use of one you run the threat of marring, damaging or ruining the upper. Doing it v the reduced attached you operation the risk of ruining both.

I agree v the block the is kinda a need to to have, however yes you deserve to remove it without the block.

Wrap the upper in a towel and place it between your legs and also squeeze that hard, then through your barrel wrench ~ above the nut press down in the area with one hand to secure the on the nut far better and slap the opposite end of the wrench through the palm of her hand to loosen it.

Again this is just how you have the right to do it there is no a vise block, yet I to be still urging and also stressing the fact you really require a vise block to job-related on a upper properly.

Invest in the proper tools.

Here are just a few firsthand responses from those who thought they could go without, and ended up finding out the tough way.......

 


I just had to purchase a brand-new upper since I offered the block of hardwood to eliminate a barrel and cracked the receiver. Buy the ideal tools! over there cheap to compare to instead of parts.

I am trying to eliminate the barrel from my Bushy therefore I deserve to install my nifty new DD rail. Gained the FSB and also SureFire muzzle brake off okay. Making use of the DPMS armorers tool, all i have achieved so far is to ruin the recipient itself. No, ns wasn"t using the Claw. Correctly I have actually one top top order together with my brand-new stripped receiver.

 

I had actually the flattop upper clamped firmly sideways in a angry w/Delrin jaws. Put some muscle on it, heard a pop and thought great, it broke loose. It damaged alright. Cracked the recipient right below the ejection port. So i soaked that it penetrating oil overnight while i mourned my shed receiver and berated myself because that my cheapness for no buying the ideal tools to start.

 

Today, i clamped the recipient in the vice again. Already broken, can"t hurt it currently right? I also took the padded jaws the end so the steel might bite right into the aluminum. Put the eight on it again. Popped the receiver best out of the vice and also skinned a knuckle or two. More swearing. Wife and also kids heard me upstairs. Now my 3 year old kid is running about saying "son of a bealpole!" in ~ the top of his lungs. Or something like that.

Somebody aid me! I"m no willing to offer up ~ above the barrel too!

 


BUY YOUR own UPPER BLOCK!!!

 

That is the best advice I can possibly give, it will certainly be the most valuable $40 you ever before spend. I made decision to craft my very own upper block out of some thick sturdy wood and also paid the price by scratching the shat the end of mine upper and skinning mine knuckles nice badly.

During my an initial build I regulated to tweak my absent River level top upper ever before so contempt so the the bolt will certainly seat when forced, yet normally not on that is own. There is no obvious visible damage, however I understand the recipient is the end of true due to the fact that of the concern with the bolt no wanting to seat on that own. This happened due to the fact that I was trying to install the barrel in a vise v a couple 2x4s. I ordered a brand-new upper, and also the gun now has around 1K rounds with it so ns learned my lesson the difficult way. My question is, is there any way I can have that upper re-trued? It"s simply sitting in a crate in mine office, therefore it"s no doing lot for me, but now I have a new lower come play with. I simply thought I"d asking in instance anyone has ever before heard of that sort of a repair. Thanks!
